Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Handbook Of Baking


The brown front cover of the pamphlet features a black and white drawing of a girl in a sunbonnet holding her hands behind her back, with the title text above, reading Handbook Of Baking. Below the drawing is more text: Issued By King Midas Mill Company, Home Economics Department, Minneapolis, Minn. Text and the drawing are framed in a thin blue line and a double blue line. The front cover is loose from the rest of the pamphlet. The brown back cover features a drawing of a sack of King Midas Flour, with text above reading King Midas Flour. Below the drawing is text that reportedly later would be withdrawn by the company, reading "The Highest Price Flour in America and Worth All It Costs." Below that is stamped text for the retailer: Joseph Kehrer, Druggist, Jorden, Minn. Inside pages are dedicated to recipes primarily for breads and cakes.
